I'm goin' down to New Orleans to see about a friend of mine
I'm goin' down to New Orleans and leavin' all of this behind
Headin' south from Detroit, I got Cajun cookin' on my mind

When I get to New Orleans someone gonna treat me right
In a town like New Orleans someone gonna treat me right
I'll be high ten rollin' till the early morning break daylight

A Jambalaya and a crawfish pie gonna start my day
But when the sun goes down we gonna Bon Temps Roulez, hey

I'm goin' down to New Orleans to see about a friend of mine
I'm goin' down to New Orleans where the stars on the sidewalk shine
Burnin' through Mississippi with the Big Easy on my mind

And when I get to New Orleans someone gonna treat me right
Yeah, in a town like New Orleans someone gonna treat me right
And I'ma party like the devil if the Neville brothers play tonight

A Jambalaya and a crawfish pie gonna make my day
Down on the Bayou singing Hey Pocky Way

I'm goin' down to New Orleans to see about a friend of mine
Down in New Orleans good peoples there's hard to find
I bet he's making gumbo and drinkin' homemade wine

A jukebox shakin' and breakin' down in New Orleans
I'll be the highest hillbilly that Bourbon Street has ever seen
Oh yeah, yeah

I'm goin' down to New Orleans to see about a friend of mine
I'm goin' down to New Orleans and leavin' all of this behind
If the good Lord's willing and the rivers don't start to rise

And when I get to New Orleans someone's gonna treat me right
Said in a town like New Orleans someone gonna treat me right
All the cats in the cradle gonna rock this kid tonight, oh, hey

A jukebox shakin' and breakin' down in New Orleans
And if you're payin' for fun a French quarters really all you need

Down to New Orleans, I'm going down to New Orleans
Down to New Orleans, down to New Orleans, yeah
Going down, down, down, down, down, down, down tonight

Down to New Orleans, down to New Orleans
I'm going down to New Orleans, down to New Orleans
Down to New Orleans, down to New Orleans
Down to New Orleans, yeah, down to New Orleans
Going down, down, down, down, down, down, down tonight

I said, down to New Orleans, down to New Orleans
I'm going down to New Orleans, down to New Orleans
Down to New Orleans, yeah, down to New Orleans
Down to New Orleans, down to New Orleans
Going down, down, down, down, down, down, down tonight

Going, going down tonight, yeah
